Hey team! We wanted to share with you a quick story. Check this out . . .[Tell your volunteers about a recent win in your ministry.]
Here are a few things coming up in our ministry . . .
ADD YOUR OWN DATES: THE INCREDI-BOWL BOWLING BALL
This month, we’re getting students together for a fun night of games, food, and (of course) bowling — but it’s bowling like you’ve never seen it before. Mark your calendars!
ADD YOUR OWN DATES: THE US FOR THEM CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE
We’re encouraging teenagers to be FOR others (instead of just themselves) this Christmas with a fundraiser challenge. Get all the details on our website.
ADD YOUR OWN DATES: VOLUNTEER CHRISTMAS PARTY
Let’s celebrate the holidays with a little fun, food, and friends! Come hang with us. There will be games, presents, and zero meetings.
US FOR THEM: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON LOVING OTHERS
WEEK 2 BIG IDEA: WE’RE CALLED TO BE FOR OTHERS
Don’t you just love a little friendly competition? There’s something about being a part of a team that makes you excited to root for “us” and root against “them.” With people and with God, we’re often quick to see others like our enemies, but God invites us to see things differently. In this 4-week series, we’ll explore the stories of Abraham, Jeremiah, Jonah, Isaiah, and more, as we see how the big story of Scripture reveals that God is for us, we’re called to be for others, God is for our enemies, and Jesus proves that God is for us.
We’re talking a lot about serving and caring for others this month, so here’s a little thought for you to chew on. “All of us are capable of finding joy in giving. But we shouldn’t expect this to happen automatically. Spending money helping others doesn’t necessarily promote happiness. Instead, it matters how we do it.
At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
